So it happened again for like the 6th time, and the other times I just fixed it doing the towel trick. Now it won't fix it anymore, so I went onto xbox.com. They said my warranty is expired, and it's going to cost $99 to fix. WTF? **** that.

If you get the red ring they should fix it. They fixed mine every time and I had xbox 360s for like 3 or 4 years.

Edit: Wow yoou sereuslt used the towl trick? That only worked for like 10 minutes for me

What about changing to the new gen? Buy a G24. It has 24 frets and the G stands for Guitar... I would sell it on ebay, giving the profit to the homeless or buying a new whammy bar

I don't understand how X360 is the leading system with this going on. I mean, is 100 bucks difference really worth it for a system that has pretty much a 100% chance of breaking down. Honestly, -every- single person I know with an Xbox has had this problem. I've accidentally left my PS3 on for a day.. didn't overheat or anything. In fact, I've owned PSX/2/3/P and never had a problem with any one of them.

All my noob friends have Xbox360s and they think they never break so I told them about all these threads about it in The Pit, and guess what? You'll never believe this but they said........ The Pit (and all Pit members) are gay! You should give me some threats that I can pass on to them.

Also, should have bought a Wii.

I have a Wii. I was so excited when I got it, but I stopped playing it like a month or so after I got it.

The fact that you've put up with it SIX TIMES says alot. Seriously, sell it and get a game system that works. PC, PS3, or even a Wii, I don't care. Just get something that doesn't require constant repair. It's ridiculous to continue to support a company that doesn't give a f*ck the quality of their products.

This. The 360 is a terrible system but of you're that enamoured with it you'll pay up for the repairs.

I have a PS3 and 360, and my girlfriend has a Wii (for 2 player games, mostly). I've never had a problem with my Xbox 360 and I hope I never do. But I honestly play my PS3 a lot more (as you can tell from my sig).

Honestly, you should pay the $99. You'll probably get a better console than you already had.

Every new batch of 360's that Microsoft sends out is getting better, so hopefully there won't be a RRoD anymore. It was originally only 35% of them that got it, so it's not all that bad anymore, if you actually buy a new one and don't have one you purchased previously.

No it's still at around 33%. They are saying NOW that they are gonna try to fix it permanently, but we'll just see how well that works out.

Being an constant player of both (my friend has a PS3 and I have the 360), I definitely believe that the overall game quality (graphics, smoothness, and 360-only titles) and online play compared to the PS3 is better. Sure, Microsoft sucks at building hardware - I'll give anyone that. Even then, I left my 360 on over freaking Christmas vacation... that's THREE WEEKS. I came back and freaked out when I saw it, but it was fine.

Your xbox is covered for 3 years over the circumstance that a red ring of death occurs. Did you tell them that you have done the towel trick? Cause that will void it completely. Also, if you have had your xbox long enough that you had it red ring, then either A: you keep it in a cramped space, or you have one the old boards and that means old xbox. which means TIME FOR A NEW ONE.
There using something like 65 micrometer CPU`s now on the new boards, they basically made it virtually rrod proof.
